housing. >> (speaking spanish.) >> we don't stay at home we try to keep ourselves busy out in the street we're afraid the landlord is going to try to talk to us. his son came and offered a thousand dollars i asked him
8:31 pm
would you leave our apartment and do you think that's enough to give him more he said he wouldn't but was offering it to me. my family we don't sleep we're incredibly influenced and it's fuk our school work. >> . >> (speaking spanish.) >> so thank you for again listening to our stories this has affected my families health i'm losing won't and hair my family our dynamics are
8:32 pm
different so thank you for doing what you thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> . thank you supervisors i'm tony gonzales with american indian movement west. i share the same as what was said earlier i content the supervisors for taking the position to change legislation to include the particular tactic of harassment by landlords etc. i'm not just speaking for my organization as a vietnam veteran and the westerns that are here it facts many people. it's a shame that the rich culture that the city has projected to the outer public is in the state of problems right
8:33 pm
now. there's a lot of resentment we see those big buses that driving around here that creates the resentment to the topic. we hope there's a a balance to keep our people's here all the superdomes of society and in particular our art and cultural workings are being affected. like a brain drain that goes on in other countries there's a cultural drain here for us to maintain the cultures is to also find ways thinking about the artist in our communities and filmmakers and those who are trying to stay here and work inform the community have a hard time finding a plays to
8:34 pm
thank you very much >> thank you. next speaker, please. >>. i'm with the san francisco tenants union. thank you supervisors so far bringing this legislation back. harassment is definitely on the increase and a fashd way to get tenants out of their part times. as supervisor campos note it's a difficult issue for tenants to deal with. senile they need to live with harassment long enough until an attorney feels their suffered medical bills and that sort of thing enormously to say most tenants can't survive through the harassment and it's an effective way of getting tenants out. this legislation corrects the issue of prop m passed by the voter that denied and prohibited
8:35 pm
harassment but unfortunately, the courts throw out the issue. this denies harassment an illegal evict attempt and go to the rent board and have it investigated. in addition to being a city attorney and district attorney prop a put in the statute for $200 a day so tenants can go to small claims court and get a monetary settlement. so thank you supervisors >> any >> prayer by the chaplain. >>. seeing none, public comment is closed. this matter is back in the hands of the board.
8:36 pm
supervisor campos. thank you >> i want to thank the committee for hearing this item and essentially all the tenant and their advocates that have come out to the hearing. >> (speaking spanish.) >> so with that, i think that it goes without saying that for
8:37 pm
me it means a lot to hear if the tenants its not easy to hear our experiences it's a perm and painful thing that impacts the individual and the entire family especially on kids. and so i think this is something that is a long time overdue and something we need to move forward as quickly as possible to provide relief. i think beyond that my hope it will send a clear message to landlord that this kind of harassment is not going to be tolerated in san francisco. there's an avenue where the tenant can go to the rent board
8:38 pm
and it could be forwarded to the city attorney or the district attorney. i hope this sends a clear message especially, when it comes to some of the tenants that have been the targets of harassment. we're top of about the vulnerable people in the society people who are monolinoleum who don't know they're right so i ask for your support today >> thank you supervisor campos. president chiu >> i want to thank supervisor campos for bringing this forward and also our tenant advocates and families. we all certainly appreciate not only your testimony but your encourage in stepping up and sharing with us those different stories. we all know we have on a affordability crisis in san francisco and we've seen an
8:39 pm
eviction crisis in many of our district. we need to bring different policy solutions. last week i was part of the board of supervisors decision to move forward with the demolitions and conversion and i appreciate your support of my amendment and happy to be a co- shorn of this legislation and certainly think there's no one solution that will end the situation all of our work together will comprehensively address that and i'm proud of your supervisors to stand with the tenant that were i'm happy to refer this item with a full recommendations for tomorrow >> thank you supervisor kim. >> thank you. i'll second, that and i want to thank the
8:40 pm
community for coming out and speaking. it's heartbreaking to hear this in the immigrant communities. i'm happy to support this legislation >> i support the legislation as well and supervisor campos thank you for bringing it forward and working with all sides. while we have a lot of work to address our deep structural deficiencies we also need to make sure we're keeping people stable in their housing. it's scary where rent are right now and whether someone is lo low income or frankly middle income it's criminally hard to
8:41 pm
find affordable housing. if you're a family of kids it makes it harder the motion is to forward this to the board with positive recommendation can we take that without objection. madam clerk call item 2 >> item 2 is an ordnance to have the group comply with the family workplace ordinance. >> and wanting chewing is the author. >> thank you, colleagues. i appreciate our consideration of this brief and clean up technical ordinance to the measure we passed some months ago. if you remember colleagues with when we had passed the legislation around the friendly
8:42 pm
family workplace we have the standard as the health care security ordinance which is 20 or more employees but unfortunately, because we didn't capitalize the e on employer it created an consistent that our oc staff pointed out we want to quickly fix that as it's implement on january 1st. i want to recognize our staff anything else you want to recommend >> no supervisor the office wants to. >> tracy: thank you for clarifying the issue. hopefully, this will go through through won't be any confusion to the public that the employees will be told on january 1st you're not inadmissible and then later. so thank you very much
8:43 pm
>> thank you oc for you're working and engagement with small businesses in would what the ordinance does. colleagues, can we open this up for public comment >> that i public comment on item 2 seeing none, public comment is closed. and can we get a motion to forward item 2 to the full board with recommendation without objection that's the order. >> item 3 is the resolution adding the name to old town. and adding the name to merchant street and item 5 is the resolution adding the name to bar told street >> president chiu is the author.
8:44 pm

8:45 pm
erect those on separate signs it in the further rove clause they ask the transportation agency having the existing names to either on a single or separate sign and for the limb resolution we want to clarify the language so the honoree name there's a tip to so the board of supervisors request that the municipal transportation agency to erect the honoree and existing names of the street on separate signs with the honoree names limb in smaller letters and the bar told street in larger letters so for those two
8:46 pm
subsequent letters. >> so on the amendments described by president chiu can we without objection and we have a motion to forward items 19204 and 5 without objection. madam clerk, is there any other business >> there's no further business. >> then we are hope. (clapping.)
